It's not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, but neither is it a sustenance-free afternoon at the Ice Capades

It's formulaic stuff, but the film treats the conflicts seriously and possesses a sweet demeanor.

Though Disney's incessant promotion of Hilary Duff has made casual moviegoers run from teen-girl flicks as fast as they can, Ice Princess may bring a few back.

While Ice Princess doesn't exactly deliver any surprises -- you can easily guess how it will end -- the movie doesn't always go where you expect it to, either.

For young girls and their parents - oh, let's be honest: their moms - the fact that you go in pretty much knowing how it's going to end is part of the comfort factor.

Corny as it must be, Ice Princess is bolstered by Trachtenberg's appealing mix of eagerness and grace.

Ice Princess is the Million Dollar Baby of figure skating movies. Michelle Trachtenberg makes Hilary Swank look like Hilary Duff.

The movie does have a strong sense of the special charisma and beauty of these young demons of grace who ride the thin line between dance and sport with unerring precision.

Trachtenberg is thoroughly believable, an unspoiled charmer. Her rise from clumsy girl to someone brimming with confidence and the author of one heckuva physics project, she's a pretty cool princess to root for.
